Jackson Co. Not Ordering Flood Evacuations

Jackson Co. — Jackson County Officials are set to fight flooding on two fronts after meeting last night to discuss what should be done as flood waters are set to rise to near record levels in the coming days. The Jackson County Emergency Management Agency met with Levee officials and the Army Corps of Engineering last night. They plan on fortifying two levees; one on the Big Muddy and one on the Mississippi to combat flood levels not seen since the Flood of 1993. They are not at this time ordering¬†any evacuations but say that individuals may do so based on their own judgment.
